    In Spain usually admires European countries in general and in particular major in our area, Italy, France, Germany, for contributions and development which have contributed to the world, does not exist in any ordinary citizen malice toward any country in our environment. Spain is mainly a tourist destination that makes us open and outgoing to the foreign visitor, besides being a Western country have been open to the world for what we consider Mexico as a sister country, the strong ties that bind us inseparable. The Spanish know what we are and who we are and where we are today, we have no complex because we know we can be in the future, which certainly goes for the union, cooperation and good relations.

    in emilia their regional cusine has ragout, you are right.
    and north of rome and in all italy fresh toamtoes are common, except along the alpine chain; but the use of tomato's sauces, begins from tuscany to south; in tuscany we have "pappa al pomodoro", that uses tomato sauce.
    but you won't find tomato as a liquid sauce north of florence.

    Tuscany isn't considered northern italy; it's considered central italy, and when people want to be more precise it's considered centre-north italy.
    Emilia-Romagna you are right it's plain north italy.

    I've seen these before and the maps are massive generalisations, of course, but are still very funny. I like the British one, the Brits can be so xenophobic and they do get their knickers in a knot over the EU!

Even the cheese was invented by Romans (casius), so it is maybe the Roman cuisine that influenced the French one.

    Thank you.
    - For traditional cuisine,I don't know. Julia90 has confirmed that olive oil is used in Northern Italy, though in a less extend. I have just found figures showing that butter consumpion per capita is very low in Italy as other mediterranean countries, compared to UK, France or Germany. Scandinavia seems to be obviously a modern exception (it was not the case in ancient times).

    http://www.fas.usda.gov/dlp2/circula...ry/butpcap.pdf

    By the way, don't forget that Liguria, Tuscany or Emilia Romagne are in Northern Italy too (cf Bolognese sauce). For the rest :

    - Meat and cheese are eaten everywhere in Europe.
    - No, the Romans didn't invent cheese, this last takes its roots in the ancient Neolithic times.
    - In which way should French have influenced "northern" italian cuisine ?
    - I don't see where it should be sad to cook with olive oil, tomatoes or spices.

    No. You only presented the per-capita as a prove of the third-worldness of Spain in the 60's, but you failed because : 1) The position of Spain is 34th in the world, which is not that far from today (24-30) and 2) The per-capita is not a measurement to determine 3worldness, because otherwise a country like Equatioral Guinea, which ranks 19th in per-capita, would be a 1st world country, but obviously it is not, because it has a very high index of poverty. That's why other measures are used, such as HDI or povert index.

    Slightly a little sophisticated, a reporting of the Coca-Cola for Spain acclimated in Italy, I imagine than for the ingredient Martini. With the Andalusian model Noelia López.

    In the same vein, but much more sophisticated (well, not always, though...) is the Atlas of the World by the satirical US paper The Onion:

    Germans love Italians without respecting them. Italians respect Germans without loving them
    It is very funny because we also use this expression for the Germans^^

    ""We respect Germans without loving them, Germans love us without respecting us""...Bizarre

    I have to admit my generation don't try to put stereotypes on flags, but laught a lot about religions, gays, racists, and others commnuties

    Poles

    Speaking as a Pole, I can assure you that even though Polish and Ukrainian/Russian languages and cultures are similar, that definitely does not mean that they like each other. The Russians,throughout history, have done what seems their best to make the Poles' lives miserable. The fact that they're a much larger country and very imperialistic, I might add, especially in the Cold War era, where cultural freedom was suppressed in Poland because of the Russian-Communist influence, makes a bitter taste remain in Poland's mouth. The Ukrainians are despised, also, merely for the fact that their language is practically Russian, uses the same alphabet, and that Ukraine is so close to Russia and has a greater Russian presence.
